Experts by Experience
(scroll to the bottom of page for details of application process)
The Care Quality Commission is the independent regulator of health and adult social care in England. They monitor health and social care services to make sure they provide people with safe, effective, compassionate and high-quality care.
Experts are people who have experience of using or caring for someone who uses health and/or social care services. They take part in CQC inspections of health and social care services and CQC visits to monitor the use of the Mental Health Act. Experts also help the CQC in other ways, such as taking part in consultations and staff training, and in helping the CQC to develop ways of working.
During the inspections, they spend time talking to people who use the service and observing the environment. They have first-hand experience of receiving care so they know which questions to ask to get as much information from the visit as possible.
Their findings are used to support the inspector’s judgment on the service and can also be included in the inspection report.
We are currently expanding our team and are looking to recruit 400 Experts over the next few months. We would love to hear from the following people who are interested in taking on this important role.
- People in the early stages of dementia and their family carers
- Older people with experience of using health and/or social care services, or their family carers
- Family carers of children and young people who use care services, including mental health services
- Children & young people who use services
- People who have recently used maternity services
